They sometimes make a hissy sound in between bites and when swallowing food if that what your witnessing? Aslong as he’s not showing any abnormal signs (runny nose, lethargy etc) then I doubt it’s anything to worry about:)
Hi, I made my boas bioactive vivarium water proof by using a big sheet of pond liner on the base of the viv and overlapping on the sides. I stuck it all down by using aquarium safe silicone. You can buy pond liner online or at a garden centre:)
That’s very weird, maybe it was to do with not being able to taste anything apart from strong tasting sweet things. Glad you and your brothers are all ok now!
I've been working with some particular animals that have been in terrible conditions before they were brought in to the rescue, this...
Oh noo I’m glad you were able to recover from it, what were your main symptoms with the virus? I’m still volunteering weekly at the rescue centre and I love it! I’m getting as much experience in the sector as possible. :)
I don’t really enjoy the virtual lessons as much as I’m just sitting at my computer all day and I do doze of a bit😂. Covid has really changed education and not just the kids, must be very strange for teachers too! How are you finding it so far?
If you gently press the pinkish parts of the plastron does it return to normal colour? Youngsters shells are still developing and sometimes you can see blood vessels etc through the shell.
How is the tortoises behaviour generally? Is he eating, pooping, is he active?
I hope you are doing alright Lyn, it’s been a strange year or so I’ve got to admit. College is mostly virtual at the moment but we do get one day at college a week for practical lessons. All exams were cancelled for this year too. Masks have to be worn in class rooms and we do covid tests...
I’ve had the strangest dreams but my favourite one involved me at a casino playing cards, doesn’t sound weird until I tell you that everyone playing including the card dealer was a human size tortoise with fancy clothes on and top hats... I spend way to much time with torts :eek:
